My 2002 Polo Playa

Postby Reegz » Sun Feb 05, 2012 11:43 pm

Hello there folks! I've been on the board for many years now but for some unknown reason I find myself without a rides thread.

I bought my baby way back in 2007. All I did when I got her was add central locking and a decent (read cheap) mp3 player. Some time later I added tint. A really dark one at that!

Here are some pictures..

When I got her.

Image

As she looks now.

Image

She's stock standard at the moment. Her 1.6 motor has given good service but there's changes on the horizon.

Styling will stay unchanged for now. Once the pocket has recovered I'll be looking at changing that tint to something lighter, better quality. Mags will follow close behind.

Nice one bud.

Are you running management? Is the ADY standard?

Thanks bro! I've only driven it a couple of times to test that nothing is about to fall off. Need to get the ecu remapped. It's out of synch at the moment. Will do that this weekend. Also need to change brakes before I start going crazy.

But having said that I can still feel the power! Its pure awesome!! Power corrupts..

Cool - well good luck with the last bits and bobs....

what brake set up are you going to go with? As a matter of interest, I went with std sized discs, but had them slotted, and run a set of Ferodo Plat pads, with Dot5.1 fluid and braided hoses..... the brakes are plenty good enough for the power I am making and have held up perfectly on a track day too.... just my 2c.

Pretty much the same minus the braided hoses.
